Demolition HVAC Experts
Safety is always paramount in a demolition environment and safety always come first. Our trained demolition HVAC team has all the equipment and expertise decommission your HVAC and Refrigeration systems.
We are experts at reclaiming refrigerant from any system this allows you to legally remove and dismantle your system for salvage purposes. We will completely remove the units from from your location and even break them down into metal groups for easy scrap salvage. We are efficient and will keep you budget and stick to our deadlines.
Halocarbons are often used as refrigerants. Refrigerants are fluids that draw heat and create a cooling effect when they evaporate. They are sold as single chemical compounds and as blends, which are mixtures of two or more chemical compounds combined in a ratio to obtain a refrigerant with specific properties. Thermo-physical properties of refrigerants, such as critical temperature and pressure, normal boiling point, and viscosity, are taken into account when selecting a refrigerant in order to optimize the efficiency of the cooling system.
The Federal Halocarbon Regulations, 2003, like most provincial and territorial regulations, specify which halocarbons are controlled. The terms and expressions found in this Code have the same meaning as those defined in the Federal Halocarbon Regulations, 2003.
Types of Refrigerants
There are many refrigerants on the market today, and they are usually classified in the following three groups: 1) halocarbons, which include chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) as well as unsaturated HFCs, which are commonly known as hydrofluoro-olefin (HFO) and hydrofluoro-ether (HFE); 2) hydrocarbons, such as propane, isobutane, isopentane and propylene; and 3) inorganic compounds, which include refrigerants such as water, air, carbon dioxide and ammonia.
There are various methods of cooling. The oldest method is evaporative cooling, which is simply the evaporation of water to cool the air or material around it. Later came the absorption refrigeration method, which removes heat by evaporating a refrigerant at a low pressure, and releases heat by condensing the refrigerant at a higher pressure. These methods are still used in certain applications, but vapour-compression refrigeration is now the most commonly used method. Vapour-compression and absorption refrigeration systems work on the same principle, but the former uses a compressor to generate the pressure differential necessary to circulate the refrigerant.
The basic components of vapour-compression systems are a compressor, a condenser, an evaporator and an expansion device. Components such as piping, control valves, pressure relief devices, receivers and filter-dryers are either part of the original system design or they can be added during installation or at a later date. Vapour-compression systems are common in a wide range of cooling capacities and for all sorts of applications.
